Off The Chart: 5 May 1985

Off The Chart: 5 May 1985

After receiving feedback on last week’s show, the bleep machine is working overtime as Steve and Julian try and comply with the request for “less of the sh*t talk thank you”. But they still manage to fit in a host of forgotten and half remembered hits from this week in 1985, as well as three tracks from the featured album, a look at the day’s events, a hit from the Finnish chart and the top five in full, not to mention the horror of the forfeit track – back us on Patreon for the full uncensored version of the show with the international chart rundown in place of the forfeit track, plus bonus 12″ mixes and additional strong language. Which record became the biggest selling single in US history? Why should Paul Hardcastle’s chart topping hit really have been called “22”? And did Marillion ever really exist? Click PLAY to find out!

 


If you enjoy Off The Chart and you’d like to avoid the weekly forfeit track, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? You get access to an exclusive alternative version of the show which includes bonus 12″ mixes and the foreign chart rundown in place of the forfeit track, as well as all sorts of other bonus content including regular Further Off The Chart shows. We really appreciate it and it all goes towards the running of the site.

If you’ve missed a previous edition they’re all on our Mixcloud page, or for a taster of the music we play, listen to our Spotify playlist Way Off The Chart including one track from each show!

 

We also have a Spotify playlist for our #ICEOTWF feature, including all (well, most) of the international hits we’ve played since the feature began in March 2017. There are all sorts of oddities in here, all of which were hits somewhere in the world but not in the UK!
